With an ever-increasing obesity epidemic in the U.S., along with 80 million "inactive" Americans, one tennis program—Cardio Tennis—is helping to battle these issues head-on. Developed just nine years ago, Cardio Tennis already has more than 1.54 million participants, and it continues to grow.
On the heels of a major study by the Physical Activity Council (PAC) that shows 80 million Americans remain inactive, the tennis industry has unified behind a “Try Tennis for Free” campaign to get Americans of all ages moving and playing tennis. By visiting PlayTennis.com, consumers can find facilities and teaching pros that offer free sessions for beginners and returning tennis players.
The country’s two main professional tennis-teaching organizations are supporting a new, industry-wide effort to get Americans to “Try Tennis for Free,” by urging their thousands of certified tennis teachers to offer free sessions to beginners and returning tennis players. Consumers can find these free sessions, and more, at PlayTennis.com.
